Jyoti Chopra’s Legacy of Equality

She is the senior vice president and the chief diversity and sustainability officer at MGM Resorts International. That position is the right fit for Jyoti Chopra, an award-winning diversity, inclusion and sustainability leader who has always been focused on inclusion strategies and positive gender initiatives.

A first-generation British-American-Indian is how she describes how she was born in England and subsequently moved to the U.S. to study further when she was 18. Though she has not lived in India, apart from brief holiday trips, she proudly claims herself to be a Sikh Punjabi in heart, soul and roots. She spoke to us about her Indian heritage and the deep connection she has with the country, 

“My parents are from India. My late father was born and raised in Pune and my mother grew up in Bombay. Three months after they got married, they decided to set sail aboard a ship headed for London.” She gives a taste of the inherent British humor when she mentions, “I'm told I was produced somewhere off the coast of Italy.”

From her office in Las Vegas, Jyoti Chopra spoke to SEEMA about her journey, which began in a hospital in the East End of London.
